Re: Steeplejack (Plumm)

-Again, reading these bios the first time made it seem like Chris Claremont had read the initial story, saw a grave injustice in the REAL villain getting away with it, and "fixed" it. However, as I read the first issue, it's never clear that the original Steeplejack was RIGHT- just that he SUSPECTE...

Re: The Incredibles 2 (spoiler free, mostly)

So I finally got to see Incredibles 2 on Monday after many delays. It was amazing. I loved pretty much every second of it, there were no parts where I said "this is dumb" or "this should be removed", it all worked out great. I honestly don't consider this film a step down from the first movie. If In...

Re: Batgirl III's Character Thread (Pussy Galore)

Almost every Bond film plot (especially from the Connery/Lazenby/Moore eras) will work fairly well as a street-level superhero story, if you shave off the serial numbers and maybe give the faceless goons slightly better weaponry. Most Bond master-villains are pushovers in a fight, even against Bond...

Re: Batgirl III's Character Thread (Pussy Galore)

Another reason for toning down Pussy Galore's lesbianism in the movie might have been to avoid some unfortunate implications due to her being a Bond girl. Namely that she and James Bond have sex more than once in the film. It could have potentially been viewed as promoting the disturbing idea that "...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Shades! Power Man! Hardcore! Jessica Jones!)

She was also Faith on Buffy,The Vampire Slayer and reprised it briefly for Angel . That was Eliza Dushku, not Krysten Ritter. You sure?They look an Aweful lot alike to me... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faith_(Buffy_the_Vampire_Slayer) Faith is a fictional character created by Joss Whedon for the ...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

Also, I think it's safe to say that DC has gone overboard with all of the "forces". I already thought the whole Emotional Spectrum thing was a bit much and over-complicated. The Green Lanterns and Sinestro Corps rings should both just run on willpower, the difference being what they recruited you fo...

LOL, oh geez- I missed the entire second half of Page 820 while posting. Looking at this site on my phone can be annoying sometimes. Especially when ten of the fifteen posts QUOTE ENTIRE POSTS ON THEIR OWN :). Belly-Shirt Bow is amazing, though :). That's nothing new. Dude was always proud of his a...

Re: Jessica Jones

-Even as she floundered as a background character, she gained a lease on life with the Jessica Jones Netflix series, which my friend says is the best of the four, dealing with "Abusive Relationships" as a general theme. All of the Marvel Netflix series have been good, and it's interesting to see ho...
